|Retain Mist - Multi-Panel|
Multi-Panel returns with a mini-album companion piece to last year's Train Times For Sway album. Retain Mist is initially more accessible than Train Times and still proudly carries the folktronic flag. The rhythms here are simpler, the melodies catchier. Prepare Rain's soft guitar strums hide under layers of synth blips. Restraint focuses on the minimal as acoustic guitar takes the spotlight, backed by electronic sounds and sparse vocals...

|Stay Gold - Will Bangs|
It's difficult to classify "Stay Gold" as an album in the traditional sense. The debut No-Source release from Will Bangs is more so an initial, beautiful spark of a grand experiment than it is the final words to a long mulled over topic. This collection of work (tracks 1 - 9) represents impressive sketches and musical beginnings. As a listener, these short, loop based, instrumental pieces of guitar driven folktronica stand very well on their own...
